A roundtable event on critical care management is to take place at this year’s London Vet Show.

According to sponsors Royal Canin, the discussion will see experts look at assessment of the major body systems of the critical patient, how to monitor the critical patient effectively and management of the critical dog and cat in practice.

Karen and Aarti
Karen Humm and Aarti Kathrani will be among the experts at Royal Canin’s roundtable event.

Experts will include:

  • Karen Humm, lecturer in emergency and critical care (ECC) at the RVC
  • Elle Haskey, head nurse for the RVC’s ECC team
  • Daniel Lewis, referral clinician for the ECC team at VetsNow Referrals in Glasgow
  • Aarti Kathrani, senior lecturer in small animal medicine at the University of Bristol

Liquid diets

The pet food manufacturer will also be introducing delegates to its recently launched range of complete liquid diets specifically designed for tube feeding.

Royal Canin’s Sarah Collins said: “The management of critically ill dogs and cats is challenging and can appear overwhelming to many practitioners. However, it is possible to manage many of these patients in first opinion hospital practices without particularly complex equipment or facilities.

“This session involves experts in the field, who have experience of working in private first opinion practice, and will discuss how to cope with these cases.

“Our stand will also be all about tube feeding, so we’ll be inviting delegates to find out more about our new product range that supports the nutritional management of hospitalised dogs and cats.”


Those visiting the stand (Q10) will also have the chance to win a number of prizes including a Buster ICU cage for their practice worth £250 and a £100 restaurant gift card.

The roundtable discussion, meanwhile, takes place on the Thursday of London Vet Show (17 November) from 11:30am-12:30pm in Gallery Suites 10 and 11.
